MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Game one at Minute Maid Park in 2019. The home boys face their main AL West competition in 2018, the Oakland A’s. The Astros come home limping a bit, starting the season 2-5 and scoring only 15 runs in the process. The A’s are 6-4 thus far.

Collin McHugh goes to the mound for the Astros against Frankie Montas. For more on this matchup and both teams go HERE.
